One of my grand-kids is not fond of vegetables, but she loves my broccoli casserole! I love it too, though it's not for those who are strict calorie counters. It makes a great side dish for holiday meals, but it can be served as a main dish also. For vegetarians, omit the ham, and use cream of onion soup instead of the chicken soup.

How to Make SISSA'S HAM AND BROCCOLI CASSEROLE

Step-by-Step

  1. Gather ingredients. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cook broccoli until just fork-tender; drain well. (Hint: I use the 12 oz. broccoli florets that come in a microwavable pouch.)
  3. Place drained broccoli in a mixing bowl. Use kitchen shears to cut/chop the broccoli.
  4. To the chopped broccoli, add ham and onions; set aside.
  5. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together soup, mayonnaise, melted butter and salt & pepper (to taste.)
  6. To the soup mixture, add 2 slightly beaten eggs; mix thoroughly.
  7. Pour soup mixture over broccoli in bowl; mix well.
  8. Add 3/4 cup shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese; mix to combine.
  9. Pour into 8"x 8" baking dish.
  10. Top with remaining 3/4 cup cheese and crushed crackers.
  11. Bake, uncovered, in preheated 350 degrees F oven for 1 hour. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Serve hot or warm. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
  12. *NOTE:
    *You may use fresh or frozen broccoli; drain well before proceeding.
    *Cream of chicken soup works well, also.
    *Plain Ritz crackers may be used if the "Everything" Ritz crackers are unavailable. About 30 crackers.
    *If you have black truffle salt, use it! So good!
